Comment speed up dev. on P2PDNS (Score 1) 402

Who cares if we break the internet into islands? DNS needs to be a truly distributed system that no 7 people or governments can bend to their will, else we will all end up like China. -Perhaps China was the smartest of all by implementing border-gateway rules long ago? All the so-called free countries our trying to jump on ship! It seems China had more foresight than other countries eh?
I would prefer to switch my DNS scheme and jump to the public internet islands
*facebook is not on my island btw

I second that.
Photoshop CS5 on 64bit Windows 7 ftw! As stated above, even with hardware acceleration enabled in VMWare, you still will not attain that pure smooth scaling/moving around of large image works. DirectX 9.0c is available but will not run-

VMWare Server is free and will run your VMs like services -auto load, boot order and all that.
WMWare Workstation is the easiest to use many machines at once. drag & drop in and out of VMs.
Virtualbox i prefer if the host OS is linux
ESXi with vSphere is great for servers.. but you will miss your choice OS sitting on the hardware vs the hypervisor..

Comment Linux is not for main stream users. (Score 1) 1348

utility computing is for the sheep.
running compiz on my sabayon DESKTOP here at the office every part of my desktop-wall runs sessions to other windows boxes mainly. Servers, VPN connections to various hospitals that may need support. This setup has proven to be the most effective for a user like myself that has to have a stable/secure platform when supporting tye types of systems i do.
I will never be running a virtualized thin client from some mega company even though most people end up this way. Walk your path, don't cry about it.
And as long as i can build a better box for media @ home, i will continue doing so. is not DX11 coming to linux in the future? Games have always been the crux of linux..

Yes... first go with whole disk encryption. (TrueCrypt)
Then personalize yourself a nice rootkit, hide your copy of PoisonIvy or similar, and keep the keylogger running.
If the thief does not reboot the pc, you will capture any personal information on him before he does. Once the PC reboots, your 20 diget key is in full effect..

from the day i realized that i needed to learn to play doom1 via a keyboard... that was it. Now with my super high-rez mouse, xtra large teflon gaming mouse pad will pwn ANY colsole player. ANY.
All the talk aside, there is no way for a controller you use with your thumb can compare to the length of my arm when it goes to precise movments. Any real gamer understands all this,... it's only the console wankerz who because they never learned, do not understand. I do not want a better replacement.. i have refinded my keyboard skills over the last 20 years.. nothing can substitute.

Comment Re:Sorry Cisco (Score 1) 93

With Cisco building modules that can handle normal server tasks right on the gateway... why not build your own servers. I hope they do well, i respect Cisco... the other main players I only deal with because i have to. HP, Dell... phaa
Can Cisco enter the market with some competitive pricing is the big question..
